Perfection is defined as “the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects”. # 👉🏾Not only am I an idealist, I consider myself to be a perfectionist. It’s all or nothing, and I become flustered when something happens that is accidental, unexpected, or haphazard.
# 😞😞Recently, I tore my Medial Meniscus and my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) which, to say the least, left me heartbroken, flustered, and unsure about achieving what I considered to be optimum health.
🏥I underwent surgery and I am convalescing well. During this time, I was able to really understand what it means to achieve the wellness vision we have for ourselves. Does it mean running a 5K every day, training for a competition, achieving mental clarity, eating clean and healthy, or simply saying yes to drinking more water or eating more fruits and vegetables?
# 🤽🏾♂️🏋🏾♀️I asked these questions because like me, we create a health and wellness vision for ourselves and we only identify with the end game, not the process, not the little things that are a part of a bigger thing that is part of that end game.
# 🚵🏾♂️🚣🏾♀️Like me, we obsess with starting and having an “all or nothing” attitude, and loose perspective on the journey and the process. There is no “right way” or “wrong way” to go on your journey or the way you choose to achieve your goals. What is important is that while you are on “your journey”, you enjoy every single moment. If you want to start drinking 3L of water daily, then start. You don’t have to start with HITT cardio, weight lifting, or subscribing to a workout program.
# 🧘🏾♀️🍉When we focus on small lifestyle changes one day at a time, we are officially moving towards achieving our desired health goals.
# 👉🏾What are 3 things that can be done NOW to get you there? These are mine:
Drink more water, get 4 servings of vegetables daily, and get 7 hours of sleep.
# 👇🏾👇🏾What are yours?
💦Hydration is key. Water is so beneficial for our bodies in so many ways. Proper hydration helps reduce acne, aids in weight loss, helps the body produce melatonin to improve sleep and helps aid in digestion just to name a few...Help save the environment by reducing plastic waste and boost your daily water intake with this 40oz double insulated water bottle. Available in white, mint, pink and matte black.💦
Sometimes I really overthink being a fitness coach, and what I post on social media...but this photo is more like what I used to post so have at it. Shoutout to @hidratespark for shooting me their water bottle because I’ve been staying on my h20 game and my skin is LOVING it. #drinkmorewater
Lol at this perfectly timed photo. 😂 my hubs takes the best pictures of me when I look like I’m dying.
Truthfully though, I’ve been struggling. It’s been a hard few months for the #selflove train.
I’ve been coached since I was 3 years old. I’ve played all the sports from ballet to powerlifting. Having a coach these last few weeks has been really helpful. No one is harder on me than myself, mentally. It’s nice to go in and be told what to do next and lose myself in the workout.
All I can do is try to be better tomorrow.
Thank you for "Made for More", @msrachelhollis !!!! I had such an incredible time on Monday with a group of wonderful women being inspired!!
A million things stuck with me, but one thing I was so thankful for is when I heard, "My brother's death can't take away from the gift of his life!" (Or something like that 🙄) That is exactly how I feel and why I'm so thankful for the Mark Steffes Memorial Foundation. This is how my brother's friends and I make sure the gift of his life continues to impact others and continue to make a difference. We love giving big bear hugs (Mark gave the best!) to people needing them in our community! 🐻❤
Why hasn't Kangen water went viral yet??
Enagic doesn't market or advertise their products. If they were to pay a supporter to advertise like a top athlete, a corporation, a celebrity(Jay Z, Beyonce, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie just to name a couple) or a famous rich person like Bill Gates (16 machines in his mansion), there is no way their factories could keep up with the production of these medical grade devices(used in hospitals in Asia)👀
So why don't they make enough factories to support going public?
All the money they save from not marketing goes directly to the distributors. Normal people with machines, who help share the water and educate people. They do this to spread wealth to the middle and lower classes rather than paying an already wealthy person, or the top of the pyramid at a corporation to advertise for them.👏
Without advertising (something big companies spend up to 40% of profits on), Enagic is able to bless people in a way no one else in the world does with their patented compensation plan.
In my next post I'll share what makes their compensation plan so unique.
To healthy minds, bodies, and finances👻
Did you drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of water today?? That should be our goal every day.
It's my goal but its SO👏FREAKIN👏HARD👏
I'm not a huge fan of plain water but that's not really why its so hard. It's hard because i'm literally peeing every 15 minutes. Does it ever slow down?!?! 💧💧💧
Anyways, Wednesday is my day to push myself to drink as much water as I can. I got 128oz in today which is more than my goal so I'm satisfied!
But I am going to stop drinking water now or else I'll be up all night 😂🚾

I rarely, if ever, get my nutrition 100% right for an entire day. But what I do every single day, is drink at least 100 ounces of water. I've found that it helps me maintain, even when I mess up in other areas, makes me feel better, and improves the appearance of my skin. You should aim for half your body weight in ounces. Are you drinking enough water today?
